  • Let’s Talk is an informal consultation only. Let’s Talk is not counseling.
  • Let’s Talk conversations are not part of students’ releasable records.
  • Although Let's Talk consultants are mental health professionals, Let's Talk consultations do not constitute mental health treatment.
  • Limits to confidentiality- When there is an immediate threat of harm to you or others, Let's Talk counselors are required by law to report this. When a minor, elderly person, or someone otherwise incapacitated is being abused, Let's Talk consultants are also required by law to report this.
  • If your Let's Talk consultant assesses that you could benefit from a higher level of care, every effort will be made to refer you to other appropriate resources at the university  and surrounding community


The "Let's Talk" program is modeled in part on the "Let's Talk" program at Cornell University. We are indebted to our colleagues there for the name and idea; some of the material on their website has been duplicated here with permission. Special thanks to Cornell University CAPS, for sharing their expertise and experience.
